SILVER SPRING, Md.--(Webs.com, the popular, do-it-yourself solution for website creation, today launched ContactMe.com, the first customer relationship management (CRM) tool targeted exclusively at home and micro-businesses (0-5 employees). ContactMe helps busy entrepreneurs consolidate and manage their contacts, track customer relationships, attract more leads, and save valuable time.)--
“Over 1 million small businesses use Webs.com to manage their own websites. We watched entrepreneurs struggle to organize their business information and still give customers the best possible service. Bigger companies have adopted expensive and elaborate CRM tools to optimize their workflow”
“Over 1 million small businesses use Webs.com to manage their own websites. We watched entrepreneurs struggle to organize their business information and still give customers the best possible service. Bigger companies have adopted expensive and elaborate CRM tools to optimize their workflow,” explains Haroon Mokhtarzada, CEO and co-founder of Webs.com. “We realized that home and micro-business owners needed a similar solution, but one that was much simpler and more economical than a typical CRM suite. ContactMe is that solution: it’s an easy-to-use, affordable, reliable tool that helps micro-businesses become more productive, efficient, and professional.”
In the U.S., there are an estimated 29 million small businesses, and 91 percent of those small businesses have between zero and four employees.¹ Nearly 40 percent of small business owners work 60 hours or more a week and nearly 30 percent work 6 days/week.² Plus, half of all small business owners take a mere seven days (or less) off each year.³ It’s no surprise that long hours and little time off rank as one of the top three challenges for small business owners.
Indeed, small business owners have a million things on their to-do lists, and keeping their business information in their heads—or scattered across emails, spreadsheets, and files—is inefficient and stressful. ContactMe lets entrepreneurs consolidate all of their contacts into one convenient, online system accessible from any Web or mobile device. Contacts, leads, and customers can be categorized by group and sales stage for effortless tracking and management.
Entrepreneurs can also consolidate all their notes, emails, tasks, and appointments for each contact. Organizing business information by contact is a unique element of ContactMe that makes it easy for entrepreneurs to keep information at their fingertips and to stay on top of every detail and deadline.
Designed specifically for small business owners, ContactMe offers straightforward, intuitive tools and a visually-pleasing interface. The system is packed with time-saving features, like a daily agenda, built-in calendar, one-step bulk emailing, marketing reports, and the ability to sync with popular services like ConstantContact® and MailChimp®, and Google®, among others.
Another unique element is the ContactMe button, which attracts the attention of site visitors and boosts the number of leads. The free ContactMe button and web form can be added everywhere entrepreneurs have a presence on the web to collect leads from websites, blogs, Craigslist, Facebook, and more. The button and CRM tool are, together, simply the best way to generate leads, follow through with potential clients, turn them into sales, and manage ongoing customer relationships.
Today, ContactMe is also announcing strategic partnerships with leading small business technology solutions, including: ConstantContact®, Network Solutions®, and RingCentral®.
ContactMe is available for a free 30-day trial; the ContactMe button is free for life. ContactMe Pro subscriptions, which include the full suite of features, are offered at $9.95/month. To sign up for a free trial or take a tour, visit http://www.contactme.com/.
